About the Mississippi Gravel Cup Series
The series is the brainchild of three guys who love bikes and gravel: Matt Roland, Jason Shearer, and Landon Voller. They have spent the past several years riding gravel and watching how gravel racing has caught the interest of cycling communities around the country.
The races are held in four very different parts of the state which allows riders to enjoy different terrains for each race. Between the varying grades of gravel and the ever-changing course conditions, these four races provide just about everything you could ask for in a gravel series. Add to that the unique culture and personality that comes with those who love this type of course and format, and you’ll find yourself in the perfect place for an exciting and inspiring ride! Check out each individual race for a rough description of the course and terrain, and then get ready for some gravel grinding fun!
